• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

When putting in these freq's for Nebraska Highway Patrol on the win96 should they be AM or FM on the RX mode?

42.34(base)/42.18(Mobile)
42.46(base)/42.30(Mobile)
42.48(base)/42.28(Mobile)

42.04 is used as talkaround/air to ground

465.525 is their mobile repeater

You also need a good antenna to pick up those Low Band signals. The rubber duck that comes with the PRO-96 is almost worthless for picking up low band useless you are right in the path. Plan on using a good outside antenna to hear much of anything.

that couldnt be more true, i purchased a $100 antenna specifically for listening to the nebraska state patrol, and still, i cant hear everything, i can hear all the dispatch channels but to hear an actual unit you need to be within about 5-10 miles of that unit (thats with the low band antenna)

you will NOT hear anything with a regular handheld scanner antenna
